FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
It is with a heavy heart that the men & women of the Collin County Sheriff's Office mourn the loss of Deputy Sheriff Mike "Mookie" Vance (Ret.) after a short illness. Mike Vance is the Constable-Elect for Collin County Precinct #1 and a 34 year veteran peace officer. After retiring from the Sheriff's Office in 2019, and with the desire to continue serving the citizens of Collin County, Mike campaigned and was elected in the 2020 general election as the new Constable for Collin County Precinct 1.
Mike was a good and valued friend and leader who always set the right example for others to follow. We appreciated Mike for his endless kindness, his courage and his faith in God. Mike was a solid lawman who earned the respect of all that worked with and for him over his long and distinguished career at the Collin County Sheriff's Office. He will be truly missed.
At the request of the family, the Sheriff's Office will update the public with funeral arrangements when they become available.
Thank you for serving the calling, Mike. God bless you for the many decades of honorable and steadfast service.
